Bound by Love!

 Here's a wonderful quote from the dear and amazing grace-lover, Jamie Weeks:

"God did not bind us to himself with the commandments. In fact, under the Old Covenant, we attempted to bind ourselves to God through our performance. God always had a better way! He bound himself to us by the cross, making his performance, not ours, the only contingency for righteousness and life."

"Where the law can never hold us, the love of God will keep us."

                                                                                              Jamie Weeks

I love that!  The law could never hold us.  But the love of God expressed in the work of Christ on the cross will keep us!  We are bound to God by love-strings, held by the power of Christ's work for us, safe in His arms today and forever..
